Opera North: Talent Development Partner 2019
Opera North’s talent development programme supported by the PRSF, includes Resonance: a residency programme for music makers from BAME backgrounds in the north of England, to develop original musical ideas, test exciting possibilities, tell new stories or collaborate with artists from other artforms.
Thandanani Gumede said:
“Resonance was a unique opportunity for me to finally create a project that I loved instead of focusing on just working to pay bills. It has shown me and my Co-collaborators what we would like to do for the rest of our lives and has opened so many doors for me personally. None of that would have been remotely possible for me without that project and the funding. It has charted a new path for me and connected me with incredibly skilled and sympathetic musicians“.
